The Morning Blotter: Attempted Bike-Jacking In South Seattle

By Jonah Spangenthal-Lee November 10, 2010

Two suspects threatened to shoot a man in South Seattle earlier this week during an attempted bike-jacking. Which is apparently a thing now.

At about 6:45pm on November 7th, the victim called 911 and said two other men were trying to take his bicycle from him near Rainier Ave S and S Forest.

The man later told police he was waiting at a bus stop when the two male suspects approached him.

One of the suspects told the victim "I'm going to take your bike."

When the victim refused give up his wheels, the man told him "If you don't give me your bike, I'm going to shoot you."

Apparently already accustomed to the threats of violence that come with rocking two wheels, the victim offered up a ballsy response: "then shoot me dog, do it," before walking away.

The suspect followed the victim towards S McClellan St, while the victim called 911.

The victim argued with the two suspects, who then fled south bound when they heard police sirens.

The victim was not injured in the incident. Police weren't able to locate the suspects.
